The five NFL head coaches who were fined $100,000 by the league for shoddy mask wearing are now in compliance with the league’s coronavirus safety rules.

The league says coaches have to cover their faces on the sideline and the NFL issued a strongly worded warning after opening weekend when there was widespread non-compliance.

After Week 2 the NFL fined the head coaches in Las Vegas, Seattle, Denver, New Orleans and San Francisco.

Those franchises were also fined $250,000.

Now in compliance are Jon Gruden, Pete Carroll, Vic Fangio, Sean Payton and Kyle Shanahan.
